David KriegerDavid Krieger is a founder of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, and has served as President of the organization since 1982.

One afternoon over lunch, I came to realize how much David’s goals and mine have in common. We’re both working to raise awareness as to the importance of right conduct. And we’re both striving for positive change through that awareness.

Under David’s leadership, the Foundation has initiated many innovatice and important projects for building peace, strenthening international law, abolishing nuclear weapons and empowering a new generation of peace leaders.

Dr. Krieger has lectured throughout the United States, Europe and Asia on issues of peace, security, international law, and the abolition of nuclear weapons. He has received many awards for his work for a more peaceful and nuclear weapons-free world. He has been interviewed on CNN Hotline, MSNBC, NPR and many other television and radio shows nationally and internationally.

Among the many acknowledgments of his work, David is a recipient of the Peace Writing Award of the Peace and Justice Studies Association and OMNI Center for Peace, Justice and Ecology (2007); ECOMIR Peace and Environmental Prize of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences (2006); the Freedom From War Peace Leadership Award (2006); Global Green’s Millennium Award for International Environmental Leadership (2005); the Peace Writing Award of the Peace and Justice Studies Association and OMNI Center for Peace, Justice and Ecology (2005).

Among the books he has written or edited are The Doves Flew High (2007); Joseph Rotblat – Visionary for Peace (2007); Today Is Not a Good Day for War (2005); Hold Hope, Wage Peace (2005); Einstein – Peace Now! (2005).

And this is just a small portion of David’s credits!

One of the things I enjoy most about David is how easy he is to both listen and talk to. He’s passionate without being a zealot; he’s committed to action with forcing others to act; and he’s always, always interested in learning more from those around him.
